South Norfolk Business Forum Dates

Date: 12th June 2019

South Norfolk Events

The South Norfolk Business Forum (SNBF) takes place quarterly at different locations in South Norfolk throughout the year.

With a current membership of over 60 businesses, the Forum gives business leaders in the area an opportunity to listen to the presentations of high profile guest speakers and question them on the issues that affect South Norfolk.

The breakfasts also offer businesses a valuable opportunity to network, helping to promote the skills and facilities on offer in the local area.

Membership of the South Norfolk Business Forum provides businesses with a substantially improved profile, both on and offline, across the local business community and further afield. The forums have been proven to boost the economic performance of the area and members they serve, including one instance of over £100,000 worth of business being passed between two members.
The forum is all about ensuring South Norfolk businesses hear of opportunities to support their businesses and help them grow.

Guest places cost £25+VAT and include breakfast (a full English) with tea & coffee. To book your place please call 01603 702374 or email us here.

Local Flavours 2019 is here

Date: 25th September 2019

Location: Royal Norfolk Showground

Breckland Events | Broadland Events | South Norfolk Events

25th September 2019- Norfolk Showground

The Eastern Region has a wealth of talented producers creating amazing tastes and flavours for menus and retail shelves, all produced from exceptional ingredients lovingly sourced, and wherever possible, from close to home. Local Flavours is all about education and awareness, creating unique experiences to get local produce on shelves and menus, and ultimately in front of the consumer.

Whilst we all love delicious food and drink, there are some important underlying factors to Local Flavours. Understanding where food and drink comes and food security (protecting the home grown industry) are both high on the agenda.  Anyone purchasing locally produced food and drink is also supporting local businesses and directly, with every £1 spent putting 70p back immediately into the economy.

Local Flavours work with producers, councils and other businesses to continuously remind buyers (commercial and consumers) of all the goodness they can enjoy from spending their money on locally produced food and drink.
